I miss this game so much. Why did I ever leave?

As soon as my paycheck clears, I'm upgrading to Leopard, boot camping XP and getting FFXi.

EDIT:

Just checked my bank account, I'm getting this beast right now.

...because most of the Final Fantasy games are awesome?

There's always IX. Or VIII. The thing is, no matter who you are there is at least one Final Fantasy game you hate.

Both of those games are really, really good. You have to finish them, though.

For a series that long, having only 1 hated game per person is pretty damned good.

btw, I hate FFIX... didn't even get half way through before I was done with that travesty. FFVIII was solid, though.

Blasphemy. FFIX was the best of the PlayStation Final Fantasies.


Also, I've noticed that most people who like FFXI hate other MMORPGs and vice versa. Though I had a few friends leave FFXI for WoW, play WoW for a few years, and then come back to FFXi.

Personally I greatly enjoyed 8. Just saying.

VIII got a bad rep, even though it's actually a great game. VI is the one I "hate" and even that's a good game, I just hate it because everybody rides it like it's the greatest thing ever.

It really wasn't.

VII and VIII (VIII was PSOne, iirc) were better.
OR

I think the choice is obvious.

It's obviously Zidane.


Here we have two mentally handicapped characters. One is amnesiac, and the other remembers things from other person's perspective.

However, one is hilarious, enjoyable character while the other is just a moody fuck who spazzes out occasionally.

Everyone just falls in love with their first MMORPG. If they ever release a new Everquest progression server (as in, it starts with no expansions and you unlock them on the server by completing them), I would play that over WoW. And I still like EQ more than WoW.
